Meet The Expert: Dr Julian Tan


Meet Dr Julian Tan, a physician and cardiologist with a wealth of experience who likens his speciality to plumbing. He subspecialises in interventional cardiology, which involves treating diseased heart vessels, or coronary artery disease.

In particular, he has special interest in performing complex percutaneous coronary intervention, which is a non-surgical procedure that uses a thin tube and stent to open narrowed blood vessels.

His proudest moment in his career so far was when he saved the life of a young man (he came in with a severe heart attack) who was in his prime and has a young family.

Watch the video to find out what inspired him to become a cardiologist and the one motto he lives by.
